Books changed Josh’s life. No kidding. In 2003, he picked up a copy of Blink by Ted Dekker in the discount bin at Walmart, and that spiraled into everything you see here. Life is Story is the result of wanting to see lives changed through story – fiction or non-fiction – and wanting to get the right stories into the right hands at the right time.

Throughout the years, Josh has served on the judging panels for some of the most prestigious annual book awards, including the INSPYs and Christy Awards. His acclaimed podcast has hosted guests like Max Lucado, Francine Rivers, Joel Rosenberg, and more. He is also the author of Art and the Bible for Children and co-author of The Blood Book (with NYT best-seller Ted Dekker).

Josh has two kids, serves as a pastor, blogs on all things theological at, and does not know how to take a serious photo.
